Vernon played host to eight media members September 16-19, 2018. The guests stayed at Predator Ridge Resort and played four area golf courses: Predator Ridge’s Predator and Ridge Courses, The Rise, Spallumcheen Golf & Country Club, and Vernon Golf & Country Club. Media also sampled some local libations with a craft beer tour at Marten Brewpub and a private tasting at OK Spirits.
A terrific time was had by all, with guests returning home to promote Vernon’s golf courses through their various publications. We thank all of our generous hosts for taking the time to help show off Vernon’s many fine qualities!
